Russian national Maria Butina is being released from the Federal Correctional Institution of Tallahassee, in Florida on Friday, 25 October.
Butina was arrested in mid-2018 and sentenced to 18 months in prison last April on a single charge of conspiring to act as an unregistered foreign agent in the United States. She signed a plea deal after being held in solitary confinement and requested a sentence of time served. Butina's lawyer, Robert Driscoll, said in late September that she would be released on 25 October.
